About TrueNorth Steel
We have more than 70 years of experience going above and beyond for our customers in a number of industries, including agriculture, construction, mining, road and bridge construction, stormwater management and energy. Our manufacturing, engineering and project management experience allows us to consistently provide high-quality construction and storage solutions.
Unlike other companies, TrueNorth Steel is an all-in-one solution. From planning to delivering the final product to your site, we have you covered. In addition to manufacturing, we manage our own fleet of trucks, allowing us to bring materials to you and eliminate the hassle of arranging logistics yourself. It also allows us to control freight times, doing away with the uncertainty that comes with using an outside shipping company.
Our team works closely with engineers, architects and construction managers, tailoring the level of service and assistance to each client’s unique needs. From concept to fabrication and assembly, we remain a true partner.
With more than 70 years of manufacturing, engineering and project management experience, we deliver a wide variety of construction and storage solutions including:
- Structural steel for commercial projects and bridge development or renovation
- Innovative storage tanks for oil and agriculture
- Corrugated pipe and retention/detention systems for stormwater and wastewater management
- Steel bridges for state parks and private landowners as well as municipalities and golf courses
We offer complete logistics services for all of our projects. From permitting and pilot cars to packaging and route planning, our team handles all aspects of shipping, regardless of complexity. Plus, we manage our own fleet of trucks, putting us in control of your delivery from start to finish. That means on-time delivery, no hassle picking materials up yourself and getting rid of the unknowns that comes with hiring an outside freight company.
Most products are available immediately. We know your time is valuable so we stock various lengths and diameters of pipe, as well as bands and end treatments, so they are ready when you need them. Specially fabricated products typically take a week, depending on the complexity and time of the season.
We don’t just manufacture the steel. We assist from day one, including working with customers on estimating, pre-construction, manufacturing, delivery and installation.
Our unique bridge design allows installation times 75 percent faster than bridges from other manufacturers, saving you money on labor costs. The entire process, from consultation to installation, takes about 12 weeks.
- Weeks 1-2: Project kick-off, begin engineering and design
- Weeks 3-5: Deliver drawing to client for approval
- Weeks 6-10: Material procurement and bridge fabrication
- Weeks 11-12: Delivery and installation
Our underground storage tanks incorporate a steel core with use of Elutron® to offer the strength of steel with the anticorrosive benefits of fiberglass. Tanks constructed of 100 percent fiberglass rely on external soil and exact compaction by the installers for wall support. Steel core tanks don’t. Simple installation dramatically reduces the risk of tank damage and lowers installation costs.
Our easy-to-set up oil tanks, catwalks and containments can be installed in as little as a third of the time as other products.
Tanks with a steel core are far simpler to install than all-fiberglass tanks. Our installation manual is only a few pages long, compared to dozens from fiberglass tank manufacturers. Additionally, we ship every underground tank with cleaned and level fittings. This saves installers several hours they would otherwise spend cleaning fittings on other manufacturers’ tanks.
No, we designed our double-wall tanks with that in mind. Available in both horizontal and vertical configurations, our tanks are manufactured with a double-wall steel design, which eliminates the need for containment. Tanks are supplied with leak detection, a submersible pump and hose options to meet your specific fueling needs.
We designed the TrueWalk Catwalk with your productivity and safety in mind. Our exclusive catwalk design decreases your setup time by as much as 35 percent — installing in a third of the time of other designs. It features an innovative structural channel that replaces 75 percent of the bolts typically needed to connect catwalk components. That eliminates most of the manual labor — and associated risk of injuries — that accompany other catwalks.
